You have to pay a UFA so much money that the rest of the league thinks it's not worth it to get him for free without giving up any assets. Until your price is so high that he's not worth getting for free, you haven't outbid anyone. Come on!
Not if he has his mind set on a couple of places.

I understand your scenario would work for a superstar that has no idea where they want to go and are simply chasing the dollars, but Richards knows where he wants to go and other teams know that and won't bother bidding.

Will the Rangers be bidding against the likes of DAL and LA, sure, but they aren't going to have to price him at a point that's ludicrous.
